I asked for half defaf-regular coffe and a bagel with PB. The bagel came out 15 minutes late waited another 10 and still didn't have coffee. Told that decaf was being made .... so after another 10min i asked for just regular coffee. The blond haired young lady, now annoyed by my inability to wait any longer, gave me an... More

Stopped in Tahoe City for a few days of spring skiing. Used this place for packed lunch and breakfast supplies. Jam and butter bagel really good. Sandwiches great too.

My new bride has stopped here for coffee apres-ski for many years, and so it was a natural for us to stop by for coffee after spending the night with friends at their cabin. The coffee was excellent; several choices, both leaded and unleaded. The morning was spoiled, however, by a group of European touristas occupying about half the tables... More

On vacation from Australia, staying just out of Tahoe City, after having a few coffees that were so bad, I couldn't drink them, after warming my hands around the cup, I left without drinking it! The next day I was walking the Main Street and asked a lady was she "a local" and where was the best coffee in town.... More

Good healthy options, including whole wheat bagels; and the coffee was great. Nice location, right on the lake.

We are always looking for a places that offer healthier options are quicker and don't break the bank. Syd's is a little hole in the wall that's probably been around many years and knows what works. We both had a great veggie sandwich and fruit smoothie that were made to order and service was fast. Reasonably priced and on the... More

Went here with my family to get our coffee fix. I am a big fan of Mexican Mochas, so I ordered their spicey Mexican mocha, I would not describe this mocha as spicey, had a very strong flavor of cardamom , I ended up throwing the coffee in the garbage. The rest of my family was happy with their coffees,... More

I hang out here when I want to work in a coffee shop or having a meeting in Tahoe City. Coffee is good, service friendly, informal coffee shop atmosphere. Lox sandwich is generous enough to split, BLT good but not extraordinary, salads ok. Price as expected in tourist town. Staff usually friendly but I've been there on a rare off-day... More

Syd's is a great spot for a bagel or breakfast burrito. Grab your food and a coffee, eat indoors while enjoying the free Wifi or sit outside and enjoy the great view of Lake Tahoe.

We waited in line on Saturday morning, and it was worth it. We ordered the early bird special and huevos rancheros bagel sandwich and had several muffins. They were all tasty and worth the wait.
